Mostly news/political. I've hooked up with groups in Japan opposed to the US bases in Okinawa. These guys want to spread their message, and there's always some protest going on, something like this.

I'll go back to Germany in April, so I will be able to spend my time on Japanese and whatever I fancy at a given time without constantly feeling guilty that I should be working on my French, I hope. So ... in the expectation that I'll be able to contribute a bit at least, I'd like to be added. :)

The holidays are over and I guess it's time to kick things into high gear. I'll be joining the team and working on keeping a semi-regular posting schedule.

As I said there, I've been on a martial arts film kick, generally from Hong Kong. I was just wondering if there was anything in the genre that had been done in Japanese, or any documentaries about Japanese Martial Arts (budo or ryu) that've been made (with subtitles). Iguanmon offered some interesting ones about the samurai, which I plan to watch, and I'd like recommendations about those too if you know any. Thanks.

For fiction samurai movies, this is a good place to start: https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/montys+top+samurai+movies/monty/

Wrote a whole post about learning by reading with the top programs and completely forgot about Yomichan!! Urgh so mad at myself. Even though your forced to use Anki for it, I'm going to try it out. Will be nice to actually study the words I lookup, at least once xD

Also added everyone that posted here. cathrynm has '??' because they never really said if they were joining or not xD

If anyone wants me to add their log or update the link to their log, let me know :3

Yeah, I'm in. I think I can dig up a Japanese movie or something.

I really thought I'd said I'd join, but I can't find it so maybe I said it elsewhere :-)

Anyhow, I'd like to join. I have a log. I think I probably need to change the title to either not say TAC or to mention 2017 or something ... but I'll wait to see what other people do.

Thanks.

Would be easier to just drop 2016 so you wouldn't have to change it everytime or add a plus sign. TAC is basically just studying your languages for a year so no need to change it.

Also might want to update ur signature xP

Yes. It's thoroughly out of date. Maybe when I get around to actually updating my log next :-)

I thought this was a TAC, but now I see it's a regular study group, so I'll join for Japanese. I need something to give me a bit of a kick to get me started again. I let it go for too long and forgot everything for the zillionth time.
